I will be designing the frame soon for a low speed engine (150cc-250cc), I want the track to be about 50" and 8' length, dang my garage size. Harley fat tire swing arm, 20"x8" tires up front and 24x10 in the rear? Please let me know what you think???
OR maybe this one? OR, let the 2 breed?

Hi Dave you are more than welcome to follow my project along, when dealing with the DMV and ATV parts, I am not going to use the QUAD frame, only take dimensions of it to build my own, The ATV frame is about, 1"dia. and .060 wall, NOT to my liking so mine will be 1.25 dia. and .120 wall. I will be looking for a smaller Honda engine (250cc) because of the quad a-arms. here is something you might not know: I wanted 18" DOT wheels up front 18x8-8 and I have 8x8 rims so when I put the tires on they are only 17"high, BUT flat so if I was to use 7" wide rims they would be 18"high BUT rounded top... sounds kinda crazy but when you think about it, it makes since??? The steering is like go cart, will be OK for non freeway speeds. Please INPUT at any time...
Welding on the lower control arms done, brackets did not warp from heat, on the other hand the swing arm bracket did, both sides pulled in about 1/8, need to open it back to final measurement. Next will be the lower steering mounts, then the upper steering mounts.

Now to add the jack shaft? Let's see? Coil-over, push rod, jack shaft, Ohhh and the seat goes in this area... dang! Guess it's not time for the mock-up of dual coil-overs up front, horizontally, Back to the drawing board...

Shock on the right, push rod on the left, jack shaft on the upper left swing arm bracket, then the seat? Am I getting ahead of myself? Rear M/T tire and Harley rim with sprocket and disc, little or no machining required,
